Here I was starting to think I was the only one who hates to scrap a perfectly good battery.
I usually put in fresh batteries before the first show of the season, then again about 6-8 weeks later. (Gigging 2-4 times/ week or about 10-20hrs of playing time per week)
Although the majority of my gigs are passive instruments so you can probably stay I go active maybe 3-4 hrs / wk on stage.
I've neve had a battery fail on stage.
